Happy Anniversary!!

This week David and I celebrated our 33rd wedding anniversary.  It's pretty awesome to know that you are married to your best friend, to know someone always has your back, and to understand that there is a special someone who is a witness to your life (haha, I got that from Shall We Dance, but it's a great quote and so apropos)!  To mark the occasion, I created the following card for my beloved.  He is not one for real mushy sentiments and is a very visual person, so I developed a card in contrasts to display how our relationship changes me.  I hope you enjoy it.

The front of the card is basic black and white.  I used images from Teen Scene and French Manor.  The font is from Art Nouveau.  A little black ribbon tied in a knot and a few black beads was all it needed.

The inside of the card is a blast of color and glitter.  It's hard to tell in these pictures, but the cardstock behind the wording (as well as the background on the front) is a very textured off-white cardstock by Recollections.  It's extremely fiberous and I think it would also work very well with torn edges.  A little pocket on the inside top of the card contains a very personalized sentiment and is topped with a green ribbon knot.  Green inking around all the edges finished the look for me.  I'm not sure it turned out exactly the way I imagined, but he sure did like it.  Thanks for taking a peek.
